Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06), Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, issued the following statement regarding the Trump administration's hesitancy to acknowledge that the Western Wall is part of Israel:
"The Western Wall is one of the holiest sites in Judaism and there is no reason to be waffling about whether it is properly considered to be a part of Israel. Jerusalem is the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish people and of the modern State of Israel. Indeed, soon Israelis will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem during the defensive Six Day War. Let's stand with our strong friend and ally and not kowtow to those who seek to do Israel harm."
